We really enjoyed:
As we drove home we shook our heads about the fact that life really was like that. How could it be? How could those living in it not have done something about it sooner?
And then the conversation veered toward our time period and the immediate needs of the world (147 million orphans; 24,000 children dying of poverty, hunger and easily preventable diseases) and Tay asked "Do you think years from now when people are looking back on our time period they will shake their heads about the fact that life really was like that? How could those (us) living in it not have done something about it sooner?

I do not have The Answers. Thankfully God does and He is the One who can handle and heal and restore the brokenness of this world. And, amazingly enough, He gives us the opportunity to be apart of it in some way(s). Here is a very limited list of resources (and if you have others close to your heart, please list them):
1. Sponsor a child
a. World Vision
2. Go on a short term mission trip
b. 410 Bridge
3. Adopt or Foster a child
c. One World
just some food for thought
